Chelsea are close to signing a No. 7.
The 2022-23 season was one of the worst for Chelsea. They spent more than $800 million in two transfer windows and made two managerial changes that didn’t lead to results. They were eliminated from all cup competitions and finished 12th in the league. This was even worse than their 10th place finish in the 2015-16 season.
Looking to rebound in the new season, the vacant managerial position was filled by Mauricio Pochettino, who led Tottenham Hotspur to their greatest heights. Pochettino was busy making changes. Pochettino’s first priority was to trim his bloated squad. He let go of veterans like Cesar Aspilicueta and N’Golo Kante, and sold Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, and Mateo Kovacic, earning over 400 million won. More than 10 players have left the club.
Chelsea focused on selling rather than buying. It was feared that the squad would be thinned out, but it turned out to be a false alarm. Once the dust settled, Chelsea went on a ‘signing spree’. Christopher Nkunkwo, who signed last winter, is now a permanent fixture and Nicola Jackson, who scored 12 goals for Villarreal, has been brought in to bolster the squad, along with Axel Disassi, Leslie Ugochukwu, Robert Sanchez, and Angelou Gabriel.
Earned a lot, spent a lot According to soccer stats site Transfermarkt, Chelsea spent a whopping €207 million to bring in six players. Not as much as last season, but still not a lot.
But it’s not over yet. More signings are on the way. The main one is Tyler Adams from Leeds United. The American-born player came up through his country’s leagues before moving to Leipzig in 2019 to start his European career. He gained experience through regular appearances for Leipzig and joined Leeds last season with two goals and four assists in 103 games.
It was his first experience in England, but he settled in quickly. Playing in a variety of positions, from defensive midfield and central midfield to left-back and defense, he led Leeds and quickly made a name for himself.메이저놀이터
This made him a target for Chelsea. The Blues have completed a buyout payment to sign Adams. “Chelsea have met a £20 million ($33.5 billion) buyout clause to sign Adams,” Sky Sports announced on its official social media accounts on Tuesday.
